Hmm. I really appreciate all the advice. Your points all seem valid and congruent to what I've thought.
And yet when it comes to the down and dirty of it, I can't make results happen and I'm still waiting for good things to happen to me rather than making good things for me.
Eg cute girl in my class. I can calculate my appearance as much as I want, but until I figure out when and what to say to her and ask her out, she's just another pretty girl that I never really talked to. You know?
Ok I'm going to post a reply because I used to be you.
Firstly, "nice" guys really do finish last. I'm not saying you should be a jerk to women, but you shouldn't go around showing them your sensitive side either. You'll come off as a needy person, which will make a woman run from you or instantly banish you to the friend zone.
Pickup lines do not work. More often than not, you won't have the confidence to pull it off, so it will come out sounding like something you read on the back of a cereal box.
The phrase "girls just wanna have fun" is the truest statement I've heard when it comes to dating. They want someone who will keep them on their toes, and be different from all the other guys who tell them how beautiful they are all day.
My main point is that attraction is not a.choice. You will never "convince" a girl to fall for you by being her bestie.
There's really too much to type out on my tablet, but I'll leave you with this for now: next class period, go sit beside the cute girl. Then, write on apieceof paper "Are you ready?!!" and hand it to her. She's going to be extremely intrigued at this point, and will almost always say yes. Then...start a game of tic tac toe with her. If you win, gloat (jokingly). If she wins, imply she cheated (jokingly). The key here is to separate yourself from every other guy she's talked to.
